My Communities

After living in Fort Collins for three years, I lived in Broomfield for more than twenty, so I know a thing or two about that wonderful community and the surrounding area.

A perfect Broomfield evening.

In June 2019, however, I moved south into a lovely home near the corner of Yale and Downing in Denver. I am loving everything that south Denver (Platt Park, Rosedale, University, University Park, University Hills, Wellshire) and the neighboring communities (Washington Park, Englewood, Cherry Hills Village) have to offer. If you live, work, and play in these areas, I can’t wait to meet you!

Community Guides

In addition to the RE/MAX Alliance Communities Guide and The O’Brien Team’s Communities Guide, there are a plethora of resources across the internet to help you learn all about the cities, towns, and neighborhoods that make up the Denver-metro area and surrounding communities.

Old South Pearl Street in Platte Park.

The Shift Research Lab/Piton Foundation Neighborhood Summaries for Denver and its surrounding communities provides “neighborhood-level data about the health and well-being of Denver-area families and communities.” It’s a great resource if you like to dig deep into the numbers and statistics of each neighborhood.

DENVER

Denver.org is everything Denver and a great resource for visitors and residents (and soon-to-be residents) alike. It has extensive Neighborhood Guides, Transportation Guides, and gobs of pages dedicated to restaurants, bars and clubs, and hotels.5280 Magazine also has extensive neighborhood guides to help you learn about all the places that make Denver a great place to live

BOULDER

The Neighborhood Guide at Bouldercoloradousa.com provides a heap of helpful information about this college town. My oldest son just graduated from CU-Boulder and my middle son is still working on his degree there and enjoying the Boulder life.

Boulder sits in the foothills of the majestic Rocky Mountains and provides residents and visitors innumerable opportunities to enjoy everything that Colorado has to offer.

LONGMONT

You’ll find plenty to do in this town of approximately 95,000 residents. Check out visitlongmont.org for everything you need to know about this vibrant community 38 miles from downtown Denver. Check out this not-so-hidden gem: Cheese Importers.

FORT COLLINS

I lived in Fort Collins for my first three years after law school in the early 90s, and wow has it grown since then! This Larimer County city swelled from just over 100,000 in 1994 to over 165,000 in 2018. It’s the home of Colorado State University and more than 20 craft breweries (and one really big one – Budweiser!)


Like anything you may find on the internet, the facts and information contained in the links provided above may be outdated by the time you visit them (and some of the information may be a year or two old—a long time in Colorado-development time). Although I’ll keep updating them from time to time, the best source of up-to-date information about a neighborhood is directly from the people who live, work, and play there.

REALTORS® like me who spend their time getting to know their neighborhoods are a great resource for up-to-date information about the communities they serve. If I can’t provide you the information you need about a certain neighborhood, I can connect you with someone who can.
